||Far and Wide’s Ropes courses are amongst some of the best ropes courses in the world - modelled on European standards you wont find anything like it in Africa.|
|Confidence Course (Blue Route and Black Route)
|Our Confidence course has two different levels to it both with their different challenges. The Blue Route which is ideal for the whole family involves rope bridges, swings, ziplines, nets and a lot more fun little challenges. The Black route involves similar obstacles to the blue route except you are high up in our majestic Eucalyptus Grandis forest. Our confidence courses are an incredible challenge for the whole family.
Adults $40 Children U12 $40
|High Ropes: Giant Swing
||Our Giant Swing is the only one of its kind in Southern Africa. The incredible feeling of free falling for a few metres, followed by the rush of wind as you pendulum between two huge Eucalyptus Grandis trees high above our camp, is a feeling that will make anyone scream like a 5 year old.
Adults $20 Children U12 $20
|Mutarazi Falls Skywalk
||The soon to be Skywalk is something that we are extremely excited about and will be one of the highlights of the Eastern Highlands.

|PUNGWE RIVER RAFTING AND KAYAKING: HONDE VALLEY
||FAR and WIDE offers four white water rafting trips on the Pungwe River in the Honde Valley. Which is located in Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands. Each trip is very different in character to the next but all are exceptional experiences. They are all participatory in nature requiring guests to self paddle their raft down river under instruction from a professional river guide. From a fun filled family day out to an adrenalin pumping non stop action decent and everything in between the Pungwe River has it all.
Bernie pioneered the Eastern Highlands rivers in the late 1980’s. He has been paddling these since and knows every turn, drop and rapid like the back of his hand. We love the fact that we have a different option for everyone so your whole family can come and experience what it is like to go White water rafting. Apart from the white water action clients also get to experience a unique view of the beautiful flare and fauna found along the banks of the Pungwe. We also run a variety of courses for those who would like to learn to kayak or raft guide.
||If it is an adrenalin rush that you are after then the section we call Bernie's Run provides the ultimate in challenging white water low volume rafting. This run is suitable for over 16 year olds and participants need to have had some experience in rafting and or kayaking as it is an extreme section of River we paddle on. There are seven grade five Rapids which are linked by long sections of ripple Rapids and a few calm pools. It is really action all the way.
Adults $110 Children U12 n/a
|Bridge2Bridge & Beyond
||Bridge2bridge is our most popular grade 3 section. This is due to the whole family being able to experience the thrill of white water rafting. It really is an amazing little section of river that gives everyone no matter your experience of white water rafting a sense of what this amazing sport is like.
Adults $70 ($90) Children U12 $40 - Bow Bunny ($50)
||If you are looking for a nice relaxing day on the river then this is perfect for you and your family. This section takes a full day. You start just at the takeout of Bernies run and meander down grade 2 and 3 rapids through the beautiful Honde valley before stopping for lunch which is provided by us. After which you take on the Bridge to bridge section.
Adults $75 Children U12 $45
|Pungwe River: River Bugging
||Our river bugging experience is another great and very unique activity. Each person gets a one man raft that he/she lies down in and floats down the upper section of the pungwe river. Very similar to tubing except you are in a real one man raft that makes the experience that much better.
Adults $50 Children U12 $40
|Gairezi Kayaking Expeditions
||For those of you who are more experienced paddlers we offer over night kayaking expeditions on the Pungwe and Gairezi rivers. The Gairezi has been likened to many rivers in California. With huge granite slides and waterfalls this is everything that a kayaker looks for.

||We love fly fishing!!!... but only for naturally occurring fish in our river systems. We are very against the stocking of Trout into our river systems (especially new untouched ecosystems) as these fish species are listed in the top 100 most invasive species in the world alongside Wattle, Water hyacinth and Lantana (just think how shocking that statistic is). If you are interested in fishing for beautiful naturally occuring fish such as Yellow fish or Tiger Fish with one of our guides then please get in touch. We strictly only offer catch and release as it is vital that we keep the stocks of these natural fish alive. Please respect our environment as we don't want to see these beautiful wild fish disappear.|
